House tour

I have a friend that has the most lovely house!
She was so kind as to let me photograph her fabulous home
and inspire all of you.....
May I introduce you to Miss Kim....
(and Maddy)

Although not a southerner ,she has the most southern soul....
Welcoming, kind, gracious, etc.....
 It all starts on her porch....







This is Miss Macey (yes, like Macy's department store)
This is the queen of the house.....
and she makes sure everyone knows it......

This is where I wanted to spend the rest of my day.....



Now do you see what I mean? .....
and that was just the front porch.....

This is her front parlor.....


This is my favorite piece of furniture.....
It is old Kitchen cabinets she purchased at an estate sale....
for a song, of course,
she painted it black and.....
WOW....LOVE IT


One of the things I love about Kim's home
is that it is always different....
her displays are constantly evolving...
its never the same house each time I go....




This is her dinning room just off the entry way,
its open to the front parlor....
The plaid chairs you see in the pictures
 were slip covers I did for her a couple years ago.



Another favorite display....
In her family room....



This is when you enter into the master suite....


This is the biggest bed I have ever seen and she has it dressed so perfectly.....

This is a new addition....
and it will have a matching friend in her on suite bathroom....
over the tub...ooooh-la la





This is hidden under her writing desk.... so cute!....




Now on to her back garden....





The entire back garden is a delight...
due to a minor tragedy, her arbor which held her trumpet vine collapsed...
so I will have to share more of the garden with you next time....

I thank you Miss Kim
for allowing me to share your home...
I am constantly inspired by your creativity and hospitality...

On another note we have notified our winner of the surprise giveaway and we are patiently awaiting an address to send it....
thank you all for playing along.
I think V and I will be having more give aways in the coming months...
but for now we are keeping busy with the Grand Opening coming up in our little store....
till next time blog friends....

  1. Hey, Kim is my former neighbor and one of my best friends! We were lucky enough to be sitting in her beautiful yard just two nights ago enjoying a wonderful cobbler she made. Isn't she a doll? She is so talented at decorating. Your pictures are wonderful. Couldn't have picked a better home to feature!
